Fly on a buttercup above a dandelion

There are some dandelions in among the clumps of buttercups that grow profusely along the Trans Pennine Trail.

You can see the wider view of them on Hyde DP Xtra.

I was just trying to get a close-up of the buttercup and dandelion together when this blow-fly (aka bluebottle) landed just as I was taking the shot.

A contribution to Monday Mellow Yellows and Macro Monday.


  1. You've captured that Monday theme for sure. That's YELLOW! Donovon would be proud. Mellow Yellow.

  2. Great shot, the fly obviously likes having its photo taken ;-)

  3. A fly photo bomb!

  4. Beautiful shot! The yellow colour is very pretty.

  5. Buttercups are coming up and spreading everywhere in my yard, but the flowers do have a lovely sheen. I wish I could just enjoy them. The fly turned out very well.
